    On Chuck, the NBC TV series tonight, they actually had a montage played to the song 'The Touch', though I think it might have been a cover and not the original version. Still, it kind of surprised me to hear it on network TV.

    On a side note, they implied that Missile Command was made by a Japanese man during the show when everyone knows that Atari was an American video game maker.

    Second side note: Apparently, they also think the Japanese had a military space program in the 1980s, which is of course not true. Then again, it's only a TV show, so I need to just relax.

    I walked into my living room while that bit with 'The Touch' was playing and I couldn't believe it. It was kind of exciting to hear it on TV like that since I don't think I've ever heard it used aside from Transformers related stuff.

    Not that, I'm just rather amazed at the (pardon the expression) nerdgaism being had over what may or may not be a TF reference. Nothing wrong with it, just kinda catch me off guard is all.

    No need to apologize for the expression. Proudly do I wave my nerd flag high for to deny my nerdness would be to deny the very core of my being. Verily do I nerdgasm over references to things I like in mainstream media. I thrill at posters of children playing with Transformers in the airport. I get that little tingle in my scalp when I hear the Doctor Who theme. I am nerd, hear me geek.

    I was in the basement and heard a very familiar song coming from upstairs. I rushed upstairs to see what it was. It made me quite happy to hear it.
